DIY Cap with Chains by Trinkets in Bloom

Hats are one of my favorite accessories, there’s just this coolness about a hat and when I see other girls wearing hats I’m always so in awe of their style. So while my jury is still out as to whether or not I can really rock a hat, I love trying new hat styles and adding cool embellishments to them, like this DIY Cap with Chains. This is a super easy project and a great way to take a basic hat and turn it up a notch!

DIY Cap with Chains InspirationI was inspired to embellish this cap after seeing this hat by Eugenia Kim. I just love the subtle, yet bold chain detail.DIY Cap with Chains by Trinkets in BloomThe best part about this project is that it can be made in about 10-15 minutes (or however long it takes you to sew a few stitches)!
